For the first time ever, SantaCon will be gracing the streets of Luxembourg.
SantaCon takes place in over 280 locations in 41 countries worldwide, but this year makes its debut in Luxembourg.
The first SantaCon took place in San Francisco in 1994 and has since spread around the world. It is basically a semi-organised pub crawl with a few rules of etiquette--participants should dress as Santa or at least be “thematically appropriate”, they should address everyone as “Santa” and should “ho-ho-ho” as well, and they should not make a nuisance of themselves or get so drunk that they embarrass the event.
The crawl will take in the place d’Armes Christmas market, the bars in the old city area near the Grand Ducal Palace, Clausen and the Grund.
All donations from the event go straight to a local charity that benefits children. The organisers have set up a great website packed wit information.
